Knitting-A 1914 Coat Set


This knitted set, consisting of collar, cuffs, and bag, is from one of my 1914 Home Needlework magazines. In addition to adding a little variety to one's best Sunday coat (which, in those days, was usually one's only coat), the collar and cuffs helped protect the coat fabric from dirt and wear.


The scan did not come out as well as I would have liked, but if you download the three pages of instructions from my Flickr account, you can save it in the largest size, at which it is perfectly legible.

thank you for the purse and coat set pattern.
I also have to thank you for all the other old patterns and designs that you have scanned and posted, they are fantastic. I am so happy that you have saved them all from oblivion.

Pretty. I love those separate collars and cuffs, just never have anything to wear them on. Not that that's ever stopped me before when i want to make something. ;-)
